Dear Sir,

I am now working in Germany and my wife and child are in India. I am on assignment for 3 years.

So I will become an NRI. Whether I should surrender my ration card or should I delete only my name from the existing ration card or should I leave as it is. I will be working outside India for 10 months and will be in India for 2 months every year.

Waiting for your advise and thanks in advance.

Best regards

Balaji A
